I think there is only one album there I'm even remotely fond of (of the ones I've heard)

I was going for 'Doomsday' up until the end . . . but then


Prepare yourselves for the subjugation!

In Rainbows for me. Most of my favourites (and this is one of my favourite years) didn't make it to this list, though.

PT followed by BTBAM. I was tempted to vote for Rush, but then again, Snakes And Arrows is only an alright album.

I hate to always mention another in these polls, but Aranis II is the one from that year that I've played the most.

Doomsday Afternoon for me. Melancholy dressed in a rock n roll symphony.

Very, very tough one for me but I went with Empires Never Last. I could easily have went with TFKs, Porcupine Tree, Gazpacho or Phideaux. I find that I listen to the Galahad album more than the others. Great, tougher sound musically and fantastic singing from Stu Nicholson!

A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

"Sola Scriptura" by Neal Morse is an excellent album, followed by Amaran's Plight

Another toughy, but I'm giving the edge to Fear of a Blank Planet, which for me is just ahead of Frames.

Devin Townsend!

Mikael Akerfeldt for fans of Opeth who don't like his growls (and generally the growls): If they don't like it then they are pussies.

Extreme prog metal rules!!!

A great year for prog, isn't it?

I'm voting for Morse's Sola Scriptura, but I know Fear of a Blank Planet will win this anyway, although I don't think it's better than Morse's, TFK's and Magic Pie's albums.

All of the Porcupine Tree fans voting for Fear of a Blank Planet haven't yet pointed out that it's actually Fear of A Blank Planet, as opposed to Fear of The Blank Planet as it's currently entered. Wink

Thirteenth Star was indeed a fantastic one.  I think "Dark Star" could totally be a James Bond theme song.

Second and third advancing, due to multiple tie, were determined according to PA reviews.
